Divisive purely based on its simplicity, Supreme‘s latest collaboration with Nike has even the most longtime fans arguing for/against its merit, but as the streetwear legends continue to do what they want, it will still sell out nonetheless. Taken up with the Air Force 1 in its most unadorned form, the partnership sees to very little in the way of outlandish modifications, effectively removing it far from the prior releases rounded off with the design input from COMME des GARCONS. Black or white are the only two options with leathers ostensibly higher quality than GRs; branding in the shape of the iconic box logo finds its spot at both the side heel as well as the insole just above the “Nike Air” insignia. And though that’s what’s been revealed prior, it looks like — according to the imprint’s Spring/Summer 2020 preview posted just today — that an extra set of logo-clad laces are going to accompany, spelling out “SUPREME” in the signature Futura all the way across from tip to tip. Grab a detailed look at both pairs just below and expect stock to land in the early stages of the season (April as rumored), with more details surfacing likely closer to February 22nd, the first in-store drop of the season.
